Her healing and spiritual journey started in the late 70's when she adopted a meatless lifestyle, which she and her three children, Christian, Jacqueline and Victoria still follow.

Linda has a holistic practice offering Transformational Therapies in English & German at her private practice in Schloss Guttenburg, 25 mins from Erlangen & Nuremberg.

History of the IWG

The International Women's Group (IWG) was founded in 1995 by 8 women of different nationalities. In the beginning, the women met informally to exchange their experiences of living "abroad" and share useful information about their host country of Germany. As the number of international employees of companies such as INA, Puma, Siemens and others increased, the membership of the IWG increased as well. With this growth, the IWG found a more formal structure necessary. Therefore, in October 2000, the group was officially registered as a non-profit organization and a board consisting of seven members was established.
